Members with the Stillwater Center in Dayton, Ohio, have worked tirelessly on the frontlines of the COVID19 pandemic. Many Union members have contracted COVID19 through their work in this crisis. These nurses are currently standing together in unity to negotiate their next 3-year contract.
The Stillwater Center is a public entity within Montgomery County. Though the workers cannot negotiate with the commissioners directly, the Montgomery County Commission can empower the Stillwater Center to authorize wage increases in these negotiations. Read the letter the workers sent on September 17th to members of the Montgomery County Commission here.
These Members also contacted the Union in early August and believed that infectious disease protocols needed to be heightened to prevent the spread of COVID19. After the Union issued a press release on August 10th, additional workers and residents ultimately contracted COVID19.
Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley also recently sent a letter on behalf of the nurses with the Stillwater Center. Thank you to Mayor Whaley for standing with these nurses and their families.
